harris perry, host of melissa hairy perry and dana milbank, columnist for the washington post. thank you both for being here. >> hi, reverend. >> hi. >> let me start with you. the president is not waiting for the republicans to have a nominee. are you surprised at all by that? >> no. because the president, as you can see, loves campaigning. and it's interesting because in many ways i think a lot of the criticism about president obama over the course of his administration has been that while he was governing, he wasn't communicating enough about what his accomplishments were with the administration. but particularly maybe this is in part being at home, in the chicago crowd, you can see the feeling he's having in front of that crowd, the sense that, i have something substantive to run on, i have something to say. and as he sort of begins to warm up for this campaign and it's going to be a relatively long one here, i'm not at all surprised he's going to start it now, keep taking it wherever the republicans are in their primary mode he's going to go and remind voters that there is another al

harris perry. host of the melissa harris perry show. you want to get your bracket prediction out of the way? >> i'm going to talk ncaa this weekend on the show, so i'm going to save it. >> good deep tease there. how do you think that changes the dialogue? we do from the contraceptive rights, which the pill does a lot of things for a woman and her body, not just birth control, where viagra is for the sexual function of a man, and that's it. >> i love these bills and they're funny. they're pushing back and suging if we're going to legislate women's body's, we should legislate men. the problem is, i think you're making a false equivalency. contraception is not just about sex. and things like waiting periods or heartbeat bills is really about the state being evasively in a constitutionally protected right of women to seek certain kinds of medical treatments, and it's just not quite the same thing. >> let's go over this specifically. we have pennsylvania, new hampshire, arizona, regulating abortion or women's rights. the arizona bill allows employers to deny coverage for contraceptive
